Minnesota - Florida

Pierre-Marc Bouchard to Florida for Mike Santorelli

Florida do this cause they get closer to the cap floor and get a 2/3 line center who is a UFA after this season

Minnesota do this as they get more cap room and get a guy who can fight for a place in the team and if not can chuck him in the minors

I don't see the upside for Minnesota. Bouchard still seems to fill a role in their top-6. On the other hand, Santorelli cleared waivers not too long ago, giving us a bit of an indication of his value. I would not expect Bouchard's to be too close to that.

The Wild don't need to clear salary since they have several large expiring contracts after next season (PMB, Backstrom, Cullen) to the tune of about $14m. Besides until the Wild are sure the next wave of prospects is ready to help moving PMB makes the Parise acquisition less of an impact.

The Wild expect to be a playoff team next season but dealing a top six forward and hoping Coyle, Larsson, Zucker are ready now would be a huge mistake.

Would a draft pick been better in the proposal as well ? And what's the valued Cullen ?

I'd think they would just prefer to keep PMB. No pressing reason not to, really.

Has an NTC and doesn't want to move, apparently.

he has a NTC and he is quite big here with charity, just donated a million to build a room for sick kids to take their minds off being sick. i think it would be a big PR to move him. plus he would be a solid vet to guide the younger guys.

he gets too much hate from Wild fans because he isn't great and cant carry a team.

I think that would be a mistake for both teams, I hate to say this... but I think Granlund is worth more in value than Bjugstad is anyways. Surprising you say that.

I say yes to the OP's post.. I think Florida might have been able to get away with something like this a couple of years ago, but Santorellis value has really fallen. The value isn't fair and I can understand that as a Panthers fan.

I'm guessing you're also a Gophers fan too, eh? That's a horrible trade.

If we trade Bouchard, I doubt we'll just give him away.

This opinion is representative solely of its author and not necessarily that of the Wild fanbase as a whole.

As far as the proposal, no. Rather depend on a healthy Bouchard and hope for the best than take on another bottom 6 player.

You guys can pretty much just have Santorelli. It's kind of you to offer something for him.

Despite what NHL.com says, PMB is not and has never been a Center in the NHL. The only time he sees a faceoff is when Koivu or Cullen get kicked out.

A Wild fan didn't come up with the OP.

Yes! We can have an all injured line of PMB-Mueller-Upshall. Guaranteed to miss 82+ games combined a season.

But seriously, yes.

Wild hang up the phone immediately (and PMB is not, nor has he ever been a center).

Bjugstad has the size and skill of a star forward, but I really think Granlund has what it takes to be a franchise type guy

Isn't PMB a top 6 forward? How is Mike Santorelli worth a top 6 forward?
